TC-Helicon, the subsidiary of TC-Electronic, released today a very interesting new device that allows to work with vocal sample synthesis inside a compact sampler. It allows you loop voice or any other audio source, transform the sounds and apply effects on it. With the new TC-Helicons Vocal Sample Synthesis technology, you can create very quick new and different vocal sounds without using samples but your own voice. On top, after recording your voice inside the device, you can use a MIDI keyboard and play your created voice sound directly with any keys.
The new TC-Helicon is in my opinion a very portable vocoder like instrument / effect that helps especially vocalist a lot to create own new timbres for new songs. I’m curious how good this device will work with other audio signals like Synthesizers or field recordings. Looking forward to checking out one day this device in live.
